Hello Ladies,
I really did feel you all around me on Wednesday as I had my first radiatiion treatment. It was a little longer than a usual treatment, they told me, because they did x-rays too. My husband timed the minutes I was away from him, and it was 19 minutes. Not too bad, and the arm was doing OK until the last few minutes. Today was a snap! In and out in 10 minutes or so. I was told today that they do x-rays once a week, so to expect those treatments to be a few minutes longer, again. But, I feel pretty good and do thank you all again for your support.
Love, Jean in WA :-)

Jean: Good news to hear! I am glad that the treatments are going well. Just hang onto those pink feathers each week when they do the x-rays. That will help you get thru the uncomfortable few mins.

Glad to hear you are doing well in there Jean.  I forgot about the x-rays, sorry.  I guess by the time you get the hang of all of this it's over, not a bad way to look at it though.  Tomorrow will be my half way point and I'm doing ok so far, a little tired and a little sore but no where near like recovery from the surgery.  So hang in there and we will make it through this together!
Love and hugs,

Glad you felt us there. We really are hard to ignore. I mean we have been known to tickle your nose with our feathers. We will get a smile. Tee hee. Hugs Joyce
